In addition, Shalamar is a trust run college.. This year and the previous year, there are students who got 100% fee waiver on merit. 1st year students, the top 3 on merit list get around 80-90% fee waiver and if financially unwell, there are students who got 100% waiver on merit + financial situation.
More than 50 students per each MBBS class of 100, get a tuition fee waiver of around 20 to 50% of the fee on merit as well as on financial situation of the guardian.
There are financial assistance forms are available every year before the start of every session. Merit based scholarships are given automatically to 2nd year promoted students and above on the basis of their UHS Professional Marks. However, if scholarship is not granted on merit, one can apply for financial based scholarships as well... Means that of you do well throughout your medical education in Shalamar, you could end up paying the same fee as NUST (AMC).
Faculty is easily outclass and the facilities are first rate.. I mean, not to brag, but the students of Shalamar don't have to climb up the stairs, there are three elevators in the building which function 24/7. #coolSeptember 21st, 2011, 01:58 PM #22
Last year, around 75 students of MBBS session (2009-2014) got a tuition fee waiver of 20-50% based on merit and financial situations.
And the top 3 positions in class in UHS First Professional (Part 1) got around 90 to 100% tuition fee waiver.
On the contrary, if you take CMH, FMH and LMDC in focus, they have become true money sucking machines.

i struggled by leaps and bounds last year to get financial assistance in FMH, Rashid Latif etc, but all in vain . . now i can assure everyone; if their is a medical college in lahore, giving financial assistance, then it is only Shalamar.September 21st, 2011, 03:36 PM #24September 21st, 2011, 04:06 PM #25
Can one with 70% uhs aggregate get in at shalamar?
How many chances?
One thing that annoy me that shalamar's date is far away and it ends when most colleges will be demanding fee and when shalamar will finalize the merit list,everywhere admissions will be close and classes may start,in this prospect should any one wait for shalamar to get one in at college,its very enigmatic situation...September 21st, 2011, 04:43 PM #26
The second question you asked has already been answered by Anas. No UHS medical college is allowed to take fee before 31st october and Shalamar is going to announce it's final merit list on 31st. So, what's the rush..
Shalamar basically has a lengthy admission procedure, because, almost 75% above students who apply here, apply for financial assistance as well.. And in such cases they have to prepare a merit list and evaluated fee structure for each student separately, which obviously takes time and then there is an interview and an essay based psychological test. In addition, they have all their focus on their current students because the UHS professional exams are approaching and they don't want to divert their due attention from them. It's like, they are not Money Thirsty. All they want is Uphold of Merit without sacrificing students just because of lack of finance. The people running the institute are the owners of LUMS, in one way, we are affiliated with LUMS and LSE as well having same owners including Syed Babar Ali (Owner of Nestle Pakistan), Chaudhary Ahmad Saeed (Owner of Servis Shoes and PIA), Mian Mohammad Mansha (Owner MCB, Nishat Mills, Richest Man of Pakistan), just to name a few. You can imagine the class and ambience of LUMS here and the merit upholding rather than money sucking attitude of the administration. The owners don't need money. They just want to give the society something back in return for their success that this country has given them. (Words of Chairman, SMDC).September 21st, 2011, 04:51 PM #27
And brother, No medical college of UHS is allowed to start it's First Year MBBS class before Mid November. And this year, the date proposed by UHS is 21st, November. And Shalamar will begin it's classes as proposed by UHS.September 21st, 2011, 05:38 PM #28
Good to listen,someone is returning their profit to country,but mine aggregate is just 70%,so its also out of way...September 21st, 2011, 07:18 PM #29September 21st, 2011, 07:33 PM #30
A friend of my frind who is at shalamar told me last year merit was ended at 68% at shalamar,was the case like this.....???
If yes then i may have a chance there!September 22nd, 2011, 01:03 AM #31
You must apply though because, there is a quota of overseas seats as well. You might get into it, by paying around Rs. 50,000 - Rs. 1,00,000 more than the regular seats. Plus, on overseas and foreign seats, there is hardly any merit and I've heard a 65% aggregate holder getting into CMH last year on Foreign/Overseas. And even in Shalamar, I know a certain individual having 68% aggregate getting into Shalamar on Overseas seat. Or if you may impress the professors on the interview panel, they might end up giving you a potential seat.September 22nd, 2011, 06:21 PM #32September 22nd, 2011, 06:38 PM #33September 22nd, 2011, 07:03 PM #34September 22nd, 2011, 07:23 PM #35

Its 12000$ for foreign students.September 23rd, 2011, 03:09 AM #36
There are three types of seats in every private medical college
Regular are purely merit based seats.
Overseas are for students who live outside the country but, don't have dual nationalities, like those living in Arab Countries. And if no one applies on such seats, then Sifarish is acceptable, because a foreign passport is not required. You just have to pay a little bit more than regular seats. And this applies everywhere in Pakistan.
Foreign seat requires a foreign passport and is only for dual nationals. So, no chance there. But, if you may donate as such an amount. Even AKU, won't reject your admission. Money speaks louder than Merit mate They'll not then call it a Foreign Seat, it is then called as a Trustee Seat. Hope you got the meaning.. Everything is possible in Pakistan.
Undar ki baat suno ab, LMDC, FMH, Sharif and UOL have a bunch of such seats. And even CMH does such favours to Children of High Ranked Army Officers. Shalamar is relatively new that is why such a case has not been seen or reported yet but, who knows the future. I won't be too shocked either if such a thing ever occurs, because at the end of the day, Pakistan is truly impossible (I-M-POSSIBLE)..September 23rd, 2011, 03:22 AM #37
And about merit based scholarships, yes ofcourse. If you score well in UHS profs, you have all rights on the scholarship.
Even last year students who got good marks in profs, who didn't even apply for the scholarships were called by the authorities and were given 50,000 to 1,00,000 scholarship each.
So, it's like if you keep scoring well, you are eligible for scholarships. Or if you prove your financial status to be worthy of a financial help then Financial Scholarships are also available.
If you get into overseas seat, the scholarship might not be as much as regular students but you'll get it nonetheless, or if you prove your financial status to be worthy of it then why not. Shalamar has flexible criteria for scholarships.September 23rd, 2011, 04:02 AM #38
